Bioware released minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version of the upcoming RPG title Mass Effect Andromeda. The requirements showed that the GTX 1060, a more than solid video card capable of delivering lots of performance, can run the game at high settings (1080p resolution) at just 30 FPS, which is a bit low.
Michael Gamble, Mass Effect Andromeda producer, confirmed that the card is able to run the game on high settings at higher framerates, for the most of the time.
PC Gamer talked with Gamble at PAX East, and he confirmed the game will run at higher framerates. He stated–
“No, I mean, it depends on your machine,” and explained that “It’s really hard to benchmark individual machines. We’re just saying that that’s the bare minimum that it’ll run at. It’ll probably run at higher than that for most of the game, it’s just really hard to be specific about it. We just want to do the minimum and we want to do the recommended. The recommended, at least on my machine at home, I have 1060, I run at higher than 30 [fps] for the majority of the game. But it’s hard to actually to say, ‘This is the specs, and this is exactly what you’ll run at.’”
So, even it the official requirements state that the GTX 1060 (3 GB edition) is a bare minimum to run Mass Effect Andromeda on high settings, the card is capable of running it at higher framerates than 30 FPS.
